WORKING WITH RELIABLE TECHNOLOGY
HOW WE ARE USING TECHNOLOGY
INTAG Bio has developed and patented a process and bioreactor for vermicomposting of organic matter for the production of value-added plant nutrients. We start with organic feedstock, typically animal manure, blend in other organic matter that may be needed, send the blended feedstock through a pre-treatment process that gets it ready for injection into our bioreactor.
The end product of the INTAG Bio process is a liquid formulation of plant macro- and micro-nutrients and biostimulants that are produced as metabolites by the activities of the bacteria and worms within the bioreactor. INTAG Bio scientists are in the process of confirming all the benefits to plant and crop production inherent in our effluent.
INTAG Bio’s liquid vermicompost effluent has the following advantages over its more traditional alternative:
· Consistent performance
· Reduced need for traditional chemical fertilizer
· Recovery of bio-available nutrients from traditional agricultural waste
· Liquid vs. solid allowing for much more targeted, timely, and efficient application
· Ability to blend in other biostimulants
· Significantly reduced GHG emissions during production
· Fast and low-cost production
Our Bio-Agent Methodology
The two main biological agents within our bioreactor are terrestrial worms and the microbiome. These biological agents live within a closely monitored environment where we maintain the relevant parameters such as temperature, dissolved oxygen and pH. INTAG Bio has developed a way for terrestrial worms to thrive and reproduce in our fully aqueous environment.
Implementing Green Means
Another significant difference between our approach to vermicomposting versus the more traditional method is that the INTAG Bio method significantly reduces production of greenhouse gasses (GHG). INTAG Bio uses an aerobic process which reduces methanogenesis during decomposition. Methane gas is over 100 times as damaging to our climate as CO2, the most commonly emitted GHG.
